A very dangerous way to breathe in.

“Love is, Love is, Love is, Love is? O it’s just around the corner.” – Babyshambles song. 

It’s that line that gets wheeled out for every poorly written love story isn’t it? “It was love at first sight.” Bullshit. That’s not how it works, not in my humble experience at least. In my opinion that line is just a shitty gap filler by a writer who can’t be bothered to write in fine detail about the sort of things that make one person love another. In my humble experience, love creeps up on you. It’s that thing in the back of your head that you don’t want to get too excited about because you don’t want to scare the other person away, then, after maybe a month or so or weeks, when her smile curls and collapses on her face, it hits you, like a bullet clean through the front of your brain, and you fall, with what left of what you thought you thought sprayed all over the wall behind you frankly my dear you couldn’t care less.
